Lyrics
I see you, down in the front line.
Such a sight for sore eyes, you're a suicide makeover.
Plastic eyes, lookin' through a numbskull.
Self-effaced, what's his face.
You erased yourself so shut up.
You don't let up.

You have a growth that must be treated
Like a severed severe pain in the neck.
You can smell it but you can't see it.
No explanation identified 'cause you don't know.
You don't say.

And you got no reply.
Hey you, where did you come from?
Got a head full of lead, you're a inbred bastard son.
All dressed up, red blooded, Amannequin
Do or die, no reply, don't deny that you're synthetic.
You're pathetic.
Song Meaning
In this song, the narrator describes his feelings for "fake" people. He mocks people who do whatever possible to look and feel perfect, including plastic surgery and the latest fashions. The narrators opinions on these types of people can be summed up in these lines: "All dressed up, red-blooded, a mannequin/Do or die, no reply, don't deny that you're synthetic/You're pathetic." Since these people give up their true selves to fit society's mold, the narrator feels that they have no pride, and nothing to be proud of.
